"Hi, if you can find the leak the most cost effective way is to drain the pond and put a patch on the liner, then refill.
If it’s not possible to find the leak then it would have to be a new liner.

This isn’t something we normally do as part of our gardening business but I’ve had ponds most of my life and unfortunately experienced something similar myself. We could provide a quote for either option if you’d like.

Hope this helps"
